On Saturday, February 23, 2019, Acadian Companies Chairman & CEO Richard Zuschlag was inducted into the 2019 Louisiana Political Hall of Fame. The banquet was held at the Cajundome Convention Center in Lafayette.
This year’s other inductees include Raymond “Coach” Blanco, Marion Edwards, former Lt. Gov. Paul Hardy, Ron Gomez and Judge Edwin Lombard.
“When I look at my fellow honorees, I’m struck by the many different paths each of us took to get here. But one thing is very consistent. They all were dedicated to people of Louisiana and spent many years making our state a better place to work and live,” Zuschlag said during his remarks at the induction banquet.
“Many of tonight’s honorees, and the honorees who were inducted in previous years, were instrumental in the founding and growth of Acadian Ambulance Service,” he continued. “The guidance and support of elected officials, bankers, hospital CEOs and physicians, police jurors, mayors and public safety officials truly helped put Acadian on the map. I’m so grateful for all of the relationships we have built and for those who have reached out to help our company.”
The Louisiana Political Museum and Hall of Fame opened in 1993 and is based in Winnfield, the birthplace of governors Huey P. Long, Earl K. Long and O.K. Allen. It honors special individuals who have significantly impacted Louisiana politics. Each year a slate of honorees are celebrated for their unique contributions to a political landscape like no other. Exhibits for each of this year’s inductees are in place in the museum, spotlighting their histories and prominence in Louisiana.
